Muawiyah (Radiyallahu Anhu) and Yazid

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Who is Hazrat Muawiyah (Radiyallahu Anhu)? Is he a Sahabi or enemy of Islam? What about yazid? Did he kill Imam Hussian? My last question is that tell me something about Mr Zakir Naik.


A: Muaawiyah (Radiyallahu Anhu) was a great Sahaabi of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam). 

Yazid was not a Sahaabi. According to the Ulama he was instrumental in the killing of Hazrat Husain (Radiyallahu Anhu).
